Low FODMAP Bruschetta Pizza with Chicken
Transform the classic appetizer into a mealtime favorite with this Low FODMAP Bruschetta Pizza with Chicken. Gluten free and full of flavor, this will quickly become a family-favorite recipe!
On one of my first dates with my now husband, I tried Caprese bruschetta and couldn’t get over the tasty combination of tomatoes, basil, mozzarella and balsamic. Lately, I have been combining these classic flavors with chicken in this flavorful and filling Low FODMAP Bruschetta Pizza with Chicken!
Tried this tonight and really enjoyed it. Yummy flavours. I never think of excluding traditional pizza sauce but it was nice to have a change. The only thing I might try differently next time is using balsamic glaze instead of balsamic vinegar. The vinegar is yummy but would leave the pizza a bit soggy if I wanted to take it for lunch the next day. Balsamic glaze has a stronger flavour because it’s more concentrated which I like. Other than that, I loved how easy and yummy this was.
Thanks for the great recipe. It’s nice to have alternative pizza recipes.
Thanks for sharing, Megan! Glad you enjoyed it! Balsamic glaze is a great idea! If you’re low FODMAP-ing just double check the ingredients, sometimes high fructose corn syrup (a high FODMAP ingredient) is added. I typically buy thicker aged balsamic vinegar from a local olive oil shop and use that. Another idea if the balsamic glaze isn’t an option, you could leave off the balsamic vinegar and add it just before serving. Thanks for the ideas, Megan!! ??
Microwave cooking and nutrition
Are microwaves bad for your health? Almost every American house has a microwave. The convenience they offer is undeniable. However, despite the widespread use of microwave ovens and excellent safety recordings, some people suspect that cooking microwaved food makes it somewhat less healthy by removing foods from eating. Do you cook with microwave? Are microwave foods healthy?
How does microwave cooking work?
Understanding how microwave ovens work can help clarify the answers to these general questions. Microwave ovens cook food similar to radio waves but using shorter energy waves. These waves are highly selective, mainly affecting water and other electrically asymmetrical molecules - one end is positively charged and the other is negatively charged. Microwave ovens cause these molecules to vibrate and rapidly generate thermal (heat) energy.
Are microwaves safe to cook?
Some foods, when they are exposed to heat, from a microwave oven or a normal oven, are broken down. Vitamin C is perhaps the most clear example. However, since microwave cooking times are shorter, cooking with microwave does a better job of preserving vitamin C and other nutrients that are decomposed when heated.
When going to the vegetables, cooking in water takes some of the nutritional values ??because the nutrients flow into the cooking water. For example, boiled broccoli loses glycosinolate, a sulfur-containing compound that can give vegetables the ability to fight against cancer (and many find it distinctive and some find it disgusting). Steaming vegetables - even steaming microwave - is it better? In some ways, yes. For example, steamed broccoli holds more glucosinolate than boiled or fried broccoli.
Are microwaves bad for your health?
The method of cooking, which keeps the nutrients in the best way, is a method that quickly heats, warms food and uses as little liquid as possible. The microwave meets these criteria. Using the microwave with a small amount of water evaporates food from the inside out. It contains more vitamins and minerals than almost all other cooking methods and shows that microwave foods can be really healthy.
But let's not get lost in details. Vegetables are good for you in any way you prepare, and most of us don't eat enough. Is the microwave oven good or bad? Microwave is an engineering wonder, a miracle of convenience - and sometimes advantageous in feeding.
